HOUSTON (ICIS)--The gasoline making fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCC) at Valero’s St Charles refinery in Louisiana has resumed normal operations, a company spokesman said on Monday.                           

“The FCC was restarted over the weekend and is approaching planned rates,” Valero spokesman Bill Day said.

The FCC at the 185,000 bbl/day refinery was shut down on 10 August for unplanned maintenance and no other production units were affected.
